Limit Meeting Attendees RRS feed

  • Question

  • Is there a way in Outlook to limit the number of attendees at a meeting?  Suppose you only had space for 200 people but you invited 250 and wanted to decline all requests after you had reached the 200 person limit.  I do not think this capability exists, but if someone knows of a way to do this I would like to hear about it.

  • Hi,


    Based on my know, Outlook does not have a method to limit the number of meeting attendees. You can configure Exchange server to limit maximum recipients for all messages.


    For more information:

  • Supposedly Exchange 2010 allows you to configure a "Resource Capacity" if you configure your meeting room with a room mailbox. But I just tried setting my limit to 5 and it didn't block the 6th person from joining so....
